#HeroOfTheWeek: Riva Pinkhasova is one of our multi-lingual volunteers. She speaks Russian, Farsi, Uzbek and Azerbaijan. Riva is originally from Russia and was a teacher for foreign students. She joined @impactbroward Senior Companion Program in 2012 and has been enjoying visiting clients in the community. Two of Riva’s clients speak Farsi and are grateful to be able to have a volunteer who can also speak the language – they love Riva and so do we! #impactbroward #SCP

Good Morning,
Unfortunately due to serious threats to Impact Broward’s core programs that could begin as soon as April 28, 2017 the Caregiver Symposium is on hold. You can help save Senior Corps programs by contacting your Congressman and Senators with the link below to express your concerns for the drastic reduction in funding for the remainder of the 2017 federal budget and for the elimination of the Corporation for National and Community Service in the proposed 2018 federal budget?

National Service is a rare concept that unites Americans, with remarkable potential implications for bipartisanship and irrefutable benefits to our country. Please contact your elected officials at http://bit.ly/2mdm2CN to voice your concerns. Thanks so much!!!

#HeroOfTheWeek: Elsie and Tony Wong joined Impact Broward’s Senior Companion Program together in 2012, and have been making clients and their family members smile ever since. The “dynamic duo”, who are originally from China and have been married for 45 years, love helping others and making a difference. They decided to join Impact Broward after they retired to “serve seniors just like they were our own parents” since their parents don’t live in the United States. Together, the Wongs have provided almost 10,000 hours of companionship and relief to clients and their families in Broward County – and, for that, they are our Heroes of the Week! #impactbroward #scp
